For Consumers

Training and Networking


Networking with other consumer representatives is an important way to share experiences and ideas and to feel supported in the work you do. If you have ideas for topics you think could be good to discuss in a session, or a guest speaker everyone would enjoy, please let us know at

Topics for these sessions, along with details on how to register, will be promoted via our eAlerts.
